How We Met

Mackie came into my life when I needed him most. I had just spent almost 4 years with a horse that was all wrong for me. Mackie was such a willing partner, he made having a horse such a treat. He tried to please no matter what you asked of him. Knowing what I know now, I realize that life was really tough for Mackie. He had many health issues, everything from mild colic to choke, to allergic reaction to a vaccine and then a reaction to the antibiotic. His biggest challenge was getting and surviving EPM not once but twice. As a result of the EPM meds he developed gastric ulcers, it just went on and on. Thru all of this Mackie never once complained. It looked like we were finally on our way to enjoying ourselves, when his behavior changed, nothing drastic, just a little off. After a consultation with our Vet, an appointment was made at the University Equine Hospital for Mackie to see a cardiologist. The night before our appointment I told Mackie that we were going to get some answers, in my heart I knew it was not good, but I had hope because after all, these people were specialists. It was a very long day, filled with tons of tests and information overload. When all the info had been gathered, we sat down and they explained to me that he was in heart failure, only one of his four heart valves was functioning. They felt that this condition had been present for years, they said for me not to beat myself up, it was NOT something that either Dr. Cook or I had missed. Typically horses don't show symptoms because they keep trying, they said Mackie never gave up, his heart did.. His prognosis was poor to hopeless, I had 3 options, 1. leave him at the hospital and treat, however, they told me that they did not recommend treatment, even if it did help, it would be short lived. 2. take him home to die, but it would not be a peaceful death. 3. I could let him go now. I choose to let him go, I stayed with him, at his side the whole time, it was important to me that my face and my voice be the last he saw and heard. I held him and told him how much he was loved, I came home alone that day. He was only 12. I donated his body to the University Hospital, I got great comfort from knowing that his heart might help someone else's horse. I miss him everyday. Love you Mackie. We will meet again.

HI, left a vote. Happy Easter everyone. Hunted for eggs this morning with Issiac. So much fun. Then I went and worked with Amber a bit. Went for a walk with her, encountered a mud puddle, she refused to walk through it. So, we spent a great deal of time today working with that puddle! LOL! She wasn't scared, she just didn't want to get her feet wet. I don't blame her, but if we go on a trail ride, and come across puddles, she needs to walk through them. Will work some more on it tomorrow. I then stopped by Sue's barn and cleaned Darcy's stalls today, and loved on her horses for a bit.

Come visit me, Toby & Amber.

HAPPY EASTER
Have I ever mentioned that I have just the BEST horse in the world....Charlie is wonderful, we had a nice ride yesterday, about 2/3 of the ring is dry, we just have to skip around the mushy part. Charlie hates to walk in mud anyway, but because our land is clay, it is very slippery when wet, very hard when dry. Trevor is still in the city, we miss him, but this is good news that he is OK. I'm sure he will be back. Have a wonderful day, hope the bunny found you all, Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Feel better today. Went and audited a western dressage clinic. Learned some things. It was a good clinic.

Found out today that my good friend Darcy will be having open heart surgery on Tuesday. She boards out at Sue's, so I cleaned both of Darcy's stalls for her today. Probably being doing that for awhile. Then I helped Sue get ready to go to the clinic. She rode in it today, she did great!

STARTED STERL'S HAIRCUT....
We are happy to report Sterly looks good this morning, we left votes. I hate when she is off, she is so easy to read, so is Charlie. I realize that even a mild gas colic is upsetting to their systems and it takes a couple of days to get everything straightened back out. Because she is generally pretty healthy, just the usual "old age" stuff, I have always thought that if something takes her from me, it will likely be colic. So I have had a couple of real bad days too... We do what we can, nature takes care of the rest. Have a wonderful Easter, Love Donna Lee

HAPPY EASTER
Good Morning all, thanks so much for the birthday greetings for Sterly & Charlie Bubbles. It has been a busy week. Trevor is still off visiting in the city, he is missed here, our cats just love him and we have actually gotten used to having him around. It is good news that he feels well enough to be out and about. The weather is slowly turning around here, but still lots of mud, Sterly has had a couple days of mild gas colic, due to the change in weather, warm days, cold nights, but is looks this morning like she is feeling a bit better, thank goodness Charlie keeps her moving when they are outside. I had my one year review on my shoulder with Dr. LeBel, she is ever so happy, me too, however because of the little accident at work a couple of weeks ago, she is keeping my file open for another month, just in case. Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter, sending love and votes, Love Donna Lee

Hi, left a vote. Thank you everyone for supporting Toby and giving him the HOTD honor once again! There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about him. I love that horse so much! He is very happy in his new home, they love him. He has two little girls that love him. They show him and ride him. He is in the best home, and that is all that matters. It was hard to let him go, but easier knowing he is in such a loving home.

FIRST RIDE OF THE SPRING.....
Good Morning my friends. Well, it has been quite a week. My apologies for not being here for my usual Saturday morning thing, but I had to work. It was just 5 hours, at straight OT, hee haw. The best news of all, Trevor saw his oncologist on Friday, she is VERY pleased, so far. The tumor can still be felt, but she said it is smaller than 6 weeks ago when he finished treatment. She said this type of tumor can continue shrinking for up to a year. She wants to see him in a month. Second, it was a nice day yesterday, all tho still "boot sucking" mud. I got all the broken insulators replaced on the bottom row of my fence, due to snow damage. The fence looks good again, then, because yesterday was ONE YEAR since my shoulder surgery, I took Charlie out for a ride, there is one tiny little corner of the paddock that was dry enough to walk a bit, barely...but at least it was a ride. I thought it was significant. Good thing too, because it rained overnight and rain is on for today, cold next week maybe even a flake or two of snow, boo. Have a great day, we left a vote, Love to all, thanks for the prayers for Trevor. Love Donna Lee

Hi, left a vote. Issiac and his mom are sick, so she stayed home, and I went to the barn. I bought clapper hands at the dollar store, took them out to the barn. I let Amber sniff them, rubbed them all over her, then clapped them at her! LOL! She did really good with it. Then we went for a walk down the long driveway, she did great with that too, then I let her eat some grass. Not riding right now, the saddle I have is now to tight in her shoulders. Bummer, I love that saddle. Found one that does fit her, making payments on it, hopefully I can sell mine soon, so I can get back to riding.
